JUPITER’S RETROGRADE in SCORPIO starts on INTERNATIONAL WOMEN”S DAY which signifies a deepening dive of the #MeToo and #TimesUp campaigns to uncover even more taboo covered up sexual abuse rape and gender inequality issues to an even darker more intense secretive level where the real dirt in power in the world is.
PREPARE TO BE SHOCKED.
Adolf Hirémy-Hirschl, Souls on the Banks of the Acheron, 1898. Oil on canvas, 85 x 134 in.
The shadow side of SCORPIO is that ultimate black color -the void or black cauldron of transformation. Scorpio has always tied to the shadows deep instinctual primal urges for sex money power control and secrets. The shadow is culturally tied to shame which the #MeToo campaign is releasing into the light.
We will have until July 10th to take a long slow healing journey into the depths of our soul’s desires. Scorpio is the realm of the psyche of psychology so it offers us a long introspective healing time where being in the dark is a good thing.
JUPITER will Retrograde back from 23+ degrees SCORPIO to 13+. and will take until October 6/7th to regain today’s position. Really there is no further going forwards until then.
In the Tarot SCORPIO is the Card #13 DEATH
JUPITER is #10 THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE
This reversal of fortune brings death decay and rebirth.
Scorpio is a FIXED Sign of intense obsession. While JUPITER the planet of expanding knowledge is Retro in SCORPIO the questions to ask are:
What hidden desires drives me unconsciously?
What am I most afraid of?
What is taboo to me?
How do I relate to power? Can I own my own power and desires?
Am I relinquishing my power or being too overbearing?
What does my soul really desire?
Can I embrace sexuality as being of the soul and a spiritual experience?
WHats my relationship to money and power?
Our shadow is composed of those parts of ourselves that we haven’t integrated and which we project onto others. For the Patriarchy, their shadow fear is women’s power and sexuality and they used that fear to unconsciously enslave women and put them down through their own man-made stories of a dominant male punishing God who dominated the earth.
Scorpio is the 8th house of transformation of death and rebirth. Whatever it is that does not suit your soul’s real needs should be naturally left to die and rot to fertilize new growth.
For SCORPIO’s this is going to be another Dark Night of the Soul Searching which you love!
Scorpio rules the reproductive organs. For women issues with blocked sexual energy and menstrual issues can be best worked through under Jupiter’s Retrograde. For men issues about sorting out sex and love or power are also issues to be looked at.
This is also a VERY FERTILE TIME> Remember Jupiter planet of expansion is only in Scorpio once every 12 years. Jupiter’s Retrograde can be helpful to rebalance relax renew and reset your fertility and menstrual cycles.
For other water signs CANCER and PISCES, this Retrograde will force you to dive deeper into your own unconscious desires which you may be in denial of.
For all FIXED Signs this transit also hits you harder- Talking to you TAURUS LEO and AQUARIUS- especially if you are born in the 13-23 degree range of those signs.
For Donald Trump, this RETROGRADE is significant as it falls right on his I.C. or 4th house cups of his Natal chart this is his roots his foundation his childhood upbringing- real estate and his family connections. Jupiter Retro also trines his natal Saturn in CANCER indicating some trouble with family members- Jared Kushner his wife?
REMEMBER that JUPITER governs truth-telling justice sign SAGITTARIUS as well as KARMIC sign PISCES. I see this Jupiter Retrograde as a time of bringing to justice and getting their karmic comeuppance to many wrongdoers and perpetrators of pedophilia money launderers sex slavers fortune stealers big power peeps and the like. Those in high places will take big falls into the abyss.
While JUPITER is in SCORPIO he is overuled by planets MARS and PLUTO. Watch which sign Mars is traveling through-
Note *****MARS will also turn RETROGRADE June 26/27 @ 9+ degrees AQUARIUS until August 27th @ 28 degrees CAPRICORN! Mars will take until October 9/10 to bypass its June Retrograde degree and truly move forwards again.
Remember that PLUTO also RETROGRADES April 22 @ 21+ degrees CAPRICORN until SEPTEMBER 30th @ 18 degrees CAPRICORN.
Sending you Blessings during the Jupiter Retrograde. It’s all good.
Don’t be afraid of the dark. In fact, sitting in totally blackness is recommended during this time. The void is what we all knew before we were born. We were safely protected totally cared for and nurtured.
